David Beckham's Assists Guide LA Galaxy To Victory

David Beckham played a key role as the LA Galaxy secured third place in the Pan-Pacific Championship with a 2-1 win over Sydney FC.

David was reported the Galaxy's best player as they edged out the Australian side in Honolulu to bounce back from Wednesday's 1-0 defeat to Gamba Osaka.

Beckham created the first goal after just three minutes, his sweeping cross picking out Ely Allen, who volleyed past Sydney goalkeeper Ivan Necevski.

Brendan Renaud equalised after 42 minutes, but the Galaxy regained the lead a minute before the break when Josh Tudela scored.

"It's always nice to have assists, and tonight I was able to get two," said Beckham.

"It's always good in pre-season to get games in because you get all the training you want."

"To get your match fitness in games is important."

Beckham took a stray boot in the chest 18 minutes into the second half but, after pacing around for a few seconds, decided to stay on, much to the delight of the Hawaii crowd who cheered his every touch.

"It's been a really good stay in Hawaii, it's just great that people enjoy watching me play, and watching the team play," Beckham added.

"That's always important, that the people, kids and everybody that comes to the game has fun and enjoys themselves."
